It’s Swamp Thing II in Queenstown


BLUES juggernaut Swamp Thing returns to Queenstown this weekend with a gig at Vinyl Underground.
Duo Mike Barker and Grant Haua blew away audiences back in August with performances at the Winter Games in Earnslaw Park, Pog Mahones pub and Cadillac Club. 

Barker is one of NZ’s top drummers, was part of the John Butler Trio and a touring drummer with Split Enz. 

His percussion skills complement guitarist frontman Haua. The Rotorua-based duo are on a three-week South Island tour. On Sunday they play two gigs – the Luggate Hotel, near Wanaka, and then later in Queenstown. 

Catch Swamp Thing at Vinyl Underground, Sunday 10pm. $20 ($15 members, and first 30 people get a free CD).
